  • No need to hurry through holidays

    Waking to a thin blanket of snow Monday morning, I sure was glad the deer had left my front lawn this weekend, and took with it the lights, garland and ribbons. Though they hadn’t been illuminated since Jan. 3, I’m pretty sure I was the last house in my neighborhood to put away Christmas this year.

    Yes, here I am talking about Christmas decorations in the third full week in January.

  • Right or Righteous

     It is a powerful scene – Jesus is hanging on a cross with two criminals on either side. All of Jesus’ enemies are gathered around taunting him, daring him to come down off the cross and show them he is the Messiah. In agony he looks down upon the crowd below, and speaks the words that set in motion the pattern that will always be followed by his disciples when they are persecuted. Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34). 

  • It’s as local as local weather can get

    When you meet Allen Brown, something rings in your head asking, “Where have I heard this voice before?”

    Recreational trails at Wendell Moore Park could soon be expanded.

    The Oldham County Fiscal Court unanimously approved Tuesday to allow Parks and Recreation to apply for a grant for the completion of trails in Wendell Moore Park. The grant is for about $112,000 with a 50/50 match. The county’s match is from in-kind donations and greenways, so fiscal court won’t have to pay the matching amount.
